So, you liked the Danny MacAskill thing, then? Now peep this:
Incredible Filming & Skating. Kilian Martin is awesome and his style is so unique…pure talent!
By the way, where was this video filmed?
Beautifully conceived and filmed. The skater is very talented, but I cringed to watch him scrape his board over some of those surfaces.
I couldn’t help but think of the slate wall caps we installed along a ramp during a bank renovation, which had to be replaced after two months because they were completely marred by kids running their skate boards over them.
John, If you like this you should check out:
Its’ the first 3D skate film, good stuff. This guy (Ty Evans) is pretty much THE guy in the skateboard film world. Check this out too, he works with director Spike Jonze as well (owns Girl Skateboards):
he reminds me of Rodney Mullen, a very balletic freestyle skateboarder. This video isn’t as high quality as the one you posted, but the way he moves in incredible: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1U-cgn3cEGA
WTW – this video was shot in the UK. Many of the urban shots were done in London with other scenes being shot as far away as on the Isle of Skye, where Danny MacAskill the trials rider comes from.
This was part of a show on UK channel 4 showing 4 (I think) film makers and urban sports people (Danny BMX, some Parkour etc)doing the filming and the stresses they went through.
For those in the UK you can view on 4oD:
